What would be the cost of electricity from these tidal turbines?
What would be the advantages and drawbacks of this technology?
Methodology Understand the working of a tidal turbine State of the technology Identify issues and socioeconomic impacts Identify issues and environmental challenge Inventory the potential for tidal turbines
Installation maybedifficults for the site with a waterflowabove3.5 m/s
Excavation needsthe use of boat thatcanlean on seabed
Conclusion Tidal turbine’s implementation is less expensive than an hydroelectic dam’s implementation After payback on investment, the cost of electricity is identical or even less expensive than electricity from hydroelectricity For the environmental impacts, more researchs should be done and implementation projects should be submited to the BAPE
